Information about the Department of Engineering Library, including information for researchers
We have a new Technology Libraries website for you to explore. It contains details of all the Engineering Library information services & support we offer & much more.
Please visit us there and adjust your bookmarks accordingly. From Summer 2022, visitors to this website will be redirected to these Technology Libraries webpages & the information here will no longer be supported.


The easiest way to track down a specific item is by searching iDiscover.

Opening hours

The library is accessible to members of the University between 09:00 and 17:00 weekdays. If the department has given you card access outside of these times you can use the library beyond these hours and at weekends. Engineering undergraduates have access from 08:00 to 19:00 every day.

To support and protect those working in the library, we ask that everyone wears a face covering and make use of the hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wipes when using the library spaces. We are not running to full capacity and we encourage everyone to allow people to keep distance if they prefer. Windows will be kept open throughout the day for ventilation reasons.

Online services

The library team offer a range of online services. These include information on how you can set-up a 1:1 Supervision with a member of our Research Support team, a series of self-guided learning activities as well as links to support your online studies and help with accessing printed and online resources. Click on our Online Services page for more details.
